About the Author:

Donald Attwater, an author and convert to Catholicism, was born in 1892 at Essex County, England. Originally raised a Methodist, he was received into the Catholic Church in 1911 at the age of 18, and married Dorothy Bickle two years later. An author of many works, his compositional style was both clear and concise, and he firmly maintained that all organizations for good are useless unless they first impress their members to seek God s kingdom. Mr. Attwater's books include The Catholic Eastern Churches, The Golden Book of Eastern Saints, A Catholic Dictionary, Life of St. John Chrysostom, and A Cell of Good Living. He died at Sussex in 1977.
